research
Edana Beauvais's research considers the democratic potential of discursive practices, including deliberation, political talk, and mundane (non-political) talk. Beauvais's dissertation work (and book project, Discursive Gender Equality) considers gendered asymmetries of discursive participation and influence. Her current postdoctoral work (with Dietlind Stolle) is more focused on the intersection of gender and Indigeneity, and compares white and Indigenous women's discursive influence in the debate over the Trans Mountain Pipeline. Beauvais has published on the topic of equality and deliberation in the Journal of Public Deliberation (with Andre Bachtiger) and in the Oxford Handbook of Deliberative Democracy. Her other research projects include studying a citizens' assembly on municipal planning (with Mark Warren), using deliberation to foster empathy (with Sule Yaylací), and group-based variation in student participation in university tutorials (with Sule Yaylací).
